because it's pretty easy to read for my level of Japanese. I may pick
up a couple of the books as well, to see how readable they are for my
level. The less looking up, the better. I can't tell how much longer
it's going to run-- it's an NHK series, and they sometimes have
Koihime Musou, huh? That was a pretty bad series, but for some reason
I liked the ED. Total tunecrime. It's something to watch if you don't
feel like thinking too much, and you just want to be distracted.
Out of this past season, I liked:
Wagaya no Oinari-sama-- it was serious at times, and just plain goofy
at times, and it wasn't too heavy.
Nogizaka Haruka-- it was totally and utterly calculated as an otaku
cash grab, but it was cute. Noto Mamiko carries yet another series.
Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto-Natsu no Sora-- the art/animation was
cheap, and I didn't like the ending, but I liked most of it.
... and that's about it. I watched a bunch of other stuff, but, well,
most of it wasn't very good. Entertaining, but not good. Sekirei was
amusing (and totally gravity-defying), but not what I'd call "high
art." That one probably gets an LFB rating of over 100... it's almost
I've been meaning to watch Allison to Lillia, but I haven't gotten
around to it yet.
For the fall, I'm looking forward to:
New Nodame Cantabile-- they're supposedly going to go to about volume
16 of the manga. Mukya!
...and that's about it. There's a bunch of stuff coming out that
"looks interesting," but there's no way to tell.
Some of the "looks interesting" stuff is:
Hakushaku to Yousei (hard to tell after one ep, I'll keep watching.)
Shikabane Hime Aka
TYTANIA (because I'm a sucker for a good space opera)
Then there's the new MSGM in January (yay!). As long as I get my Touko
fix, I'm happy. MSGM was my gateway drug to this genre.
Recently, I've been rewatching some older stuff from the Noitamina
block (Paradise Kiss, Nodame-- I should watch Honey and Clover again
to round it all out), as well as Gokujou Seitokai (which is just a
goofy series), and Moyashimon (fun series about bacteria,
fermentation, and a little cross-dressing).
I tried rewatching Stawberry Panic after the discussion here, but I
couldn't do it-- I gave up after episode 4. Or rather, my brain
threatened to use my spinal cord to strangle me if I watched any more. XD
A couple of anime bloggers have done thorough rundowns of the fall
season, including links to trailers, so I thought I would share the links:
